Processor Paper Jams

The processor enters the jammed mode if it fails to detect material exiting the processor at the expected time. In the jammed mode, the drive motor and replenishment pumps are turned off and no material is processed.

  1. Remove the top cover and light tight cover from the processor.

  2. Cut the paper at the top of each rack.

    Caution: To prevent contaminating the processor chemicals, do not let the chemicals from the paper you are removing drip into the other processor tanks that have different chemicals.

  3. Remove the cut paper from each rack by pulling straight up.

  4. Press the Material key to access the Material mode.

  5. Press the Set key and the Material key to activate the Clear Jam mode.

  6. Press the Material key to operate the processor for two complete dry-to-dry cycles and cancel the Set mode.

    Note: Two complete dry-to-dry cycles take approximately 9 minutes to complete.

 

Drive Errors

If a temperature or development time is out of tolerance for at least 20 seconds, an error condition is generated and the processor will enter the Stopped mode. No new material will be accepted, however, material already in the processor will be processed.

  1. Correct the error condition.

  2. Press Material to select the material screen.

  3. Press the Up Arrow to select the processor setup screen.

  4. Press Set to access the setup screen in the Set mode.

  5. Press Material to operate the processor for one complete dry-to-dry cycle and cancel the Set mode.
